Homemade ice creams and a sweet sugar cookie bowl are the perfect summer treat. Everyone will love this Festive Ice Cream & Cookie Bowls.
Festive Ice Cream & Cookie Bowls
As you may know, we are like 99% dye free at our house, so I needed a tasty treat that would be patriotic, but still have a little red, white, and blue flare. As I was trying to decide, my kids decided we needed some ice cream…homemade, with blueberries….aren’t the precious ones so demanding sometimes?!?!
So I made almond ice cream for the white, blueberry ice cream for the blue, and strawberry ice cream for the red. The colors are muted, but they look great and taste divine.
Sugar Cookie Bowls
But they had a great idea and then I had a great idea! Strawberry, Almond, and Blueberry ice creams all served up in tasty sugar cookie bowls. Then the hard part was trying to decide what type of cookie to make!
Gavin wanted sugar cookies, Kaylynn wanted chocolate chip cookies, hubbyman didn’t care…so much for his help. So, I decided on both. And I thought I would add some fun holiday sprinkles to the sugar cookies just to add a little more color. Most of the cookies I made were just regular cookies, but the sprinkles were so pretty….sometimes I just have to have the extra color! (My daughter was super happy with her dye free version.)
The trick is to use a cookie bowl pan. They can be a little tricky and it took me a few tries to get it right, but they do work. I make ice cream cookie bowls all the time now with this pan.
